    haha maybe, I usually rather spend my money on manga and comics though and download my anime. :p

    Somethimes I buy anime too though, hot tips: Buy School Rumble Season 1 from CDon, 49kr for the whole box. Awsome price for an awsome anime! :)

    Elfen Lied is fucking garbage. Here, something I wrote on it on some other site:

    Watch Kemonozume, people. Then you'll know what good anime is.

    Hell, one more while I'm spamming:

    Elfen Lied I think symbolizes that part of Japanese culture that confuses the rest of the westernized world, and I don't think I'll ever understand the appeal of it. It has a fun-factor in the mix of extremely exaggerated cuteness and violence, but that's also the only thing it has.

    Thanks for the Kemonozume tip, I've been looking for a new anime.

    Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood is fucking ace.

    And Elfen Lied was awesome. But I'm a sucker for stupid cutesy shit in anime. Plus they offset it by killing everything regularly.

    I rarely ever watch anime, but the best one out there (still) is Shigurui..don't know if anyone has mentioned it before! It is nothing short of an amazing visual feat..the music is another A+..no fucking J-pop bullshit

    Shigurui is definitely up there, I love how they build up the atmosphere. Sometimes it borders on just being sadistic though, with violence just for the sake of violence.

    Yes the atmosphere is just bonechilling throughout! And yes it was very violent, but I found it to be just the perfect amount..every episode only had one fight/incident where someone got hurt..and some of them were very minor such as broken fingers..but I have to say that people keep clamoring about how "realistic" the violence is..I really have to disagree, especially considering the gallons of blood spraying out of their wounds

    Memories is a pretty awesome 3 movie Dvd put together by the guy who did Akira. He directs one of the films as well. Very cool stuff. Magnetic Rose is the best of the 3. Amazon had it for very cheap in the New/Used listings. Check it out.

    Try reading it! Then it won't be just as good as the first time you saw it anymore though. ;) The movie is so much worse. =/

    That is what I hear. The Barnes and Noble around here used to carry the whole thing, now they have none :(

    Dark Horse has lost the rights to it (aswell as lots of other manga like Ghost in the Shell, Black Magic etc. I think), so it has been out of print for years. It's being rereleased now though by another publisher in the same format and design. Which is nice because I've always borrowed my brothers copies before. :p

    Where can you order that stuff? I've never read much manga really, that's because I hate reading on the computer.

    I mainly buy at my local comicshop (www.serieborsen.se you can order online from him too) so I'm not that experianced in ordering manga and comics online but most bigger stores in Sweden carries quite alot like Adlibris, CDON and SF-bokhandeln!

    Hows moving castle is an obvious modern classic, also voices of a distant star and 5cm per second are great.
    As for a nice bit of violence, afro samurai hits the spot.

    Anyone ever seen Excel Saga? That show is awesome.

    I'm right in the middle of Get Backers at the moment.
